An affordable benchmark lens

B. Maestas, Amazon
15 October 2014
  • Summary: I love this lens. This is one of the first good Nikkor lenses I bought back in the '90s and I still have it and use it every day. Although I use it on F, F2, FM and F4s bodies, I mainly use it on a Sony NEX-7 and NEX-5. I do a lot of product photography with this lens and with the APS-C sensor I get more working distance which is actually preferable. I also shoot a lot of food with this lens. It's devilishly sharp and well-saturated.

Phenomenal lens!

  • Excerpt: I was able to take a few shots with this lens before I had to return it. The sharpness and micro detail for this focal length was astounding. For some reason the aperture could not be adjusted from the camera. I bought it for this reason since I already own a 55mm 3.5 micro AI. The 2.8 AI-s is even a little sharper. I have never had a problem with a Nikon lens in 30 years so I was surprised. I will order another one.

More than a macro

Dav3g, Nikon
17 October 2013
  • Summary: My favorite lens is the buttery smooth 55 2.8 f.2.8. A bit short for hardcore macro work, but my Mamiya 120 f4 does the trick for that. The 55mm works when things are tight. Brings clarity in the fog of night, turns smiles into sunshine. Its crisp, clean, and just the right length for portraiture.

Awesome Lens!

Bodega Bay F2, B&H Photo
14 July 2013
  • Excerpt: If you are into shooting subject matter where you want to focus down to 9 inches, this is the lens! I bought it for close up work with my F2AS. For a while, I carried my faster 50mm lens with me as well, but once I saw how amazingly sharp this lens is, I rarely carry the 50mm now. This lens is fast enough for most general photography and it's sharpness will amaze you!
  • Pros: Durable, Rugged, Strong Construction

Good value

pollen-nation, B&H Photo
9 April 2013
  • Excerpt: I needed a manual iris & focus zoom-macro lens for a major project at work, with a cost that balanced performance & value. Zoom range, clarity & field of view were critical parameters for the high MP images being captured. This lens fit the requirements well and allowed the project to move forward into product launch.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged
